Howdy,
Ok, I fed Reaven (My G. Porteri) today and she did something odd. I have never seen her do this and I thought it was the coolest thing since the toaster. At first she destroyed like seven crix in a shot, holding them all in her fangs (VERY impressive) But then she dropped them all into a pile, tied it down with silk then wandered off. When I looked back a minute later and saw what she was doing, I almost choked on my pizza. She would wander off, Fang-rape a cricket or two and carry them back to the pile, tie them down with some more silk, and repeat the process. Literally stock-piling the bodies of the crix. Anyone else seen a T do this? I thought it was awesome! It was a great day for Wyatt and his monsters.

Hmm is she really big? I have only seen my T. blondi do that regularly. He eventually went to the bodypile and sucked them all dry.

My B. auratum does something similar. If I drop her 5 feeders, she kills all of them, keeping them all at once with her fangs, then drops them and eats them off one by one.

It's hypothesized that it's reactionary behavior stemming from the feast or famine mentality. A sudden burst of food source, and the T goes into gold rush mode. Get it while the gettin's good!

A lot will do it, especially desert/ scrub species. Usually once they are feeling full.

LOL Thanks all, I agree with Street's hypothesis actually. It does make a lot of sense. She isn't overly large but she's the biggest spider I have ever seen in person. LOL. Maybe 3 inches across, a little more. IDK I will have to see if I can get a good measurement.

Nice! I've never witnessed that with any of my Grammostola, only my T.blondi & L.parahybana.
